Sarah Jessica Parker welcomed twins Marion and Tabitha via a surrogate in June, and she opened up in the January issue of Glamour magazine about feeling both blessed and regretful as she tries to juggle her career with raising three kids.
On her expanding family:
“Nothing can really describe what it’s like to have two new little girls. It’s been very different than when James arrived, since our family expanded in an untraditional way. We didn’t plan on having two, but were doubly blessed, and it’s been just wonderful. [Tabitha and Marion] just turned four months old today! One would prefer to be held 24 hours a day, and the other is already suffering from type A issues. It’s been amazing but complicated because of my current work schedule, which I have enormous regrets about.”
On being a working woman with a nanny:
“It is the eternal conflict of every working woman, and I am not complaining, because I’ve done this to myself. And I have a wonderful, wonderful nanny who allows me to be a working person. The great challenge for me is to be all things to all people; I want to be a great mother, and I want to feel good when I’m at work. But it is hard.”
On how she dresses in the morning:
“Whatever’s practical for being a mother. I walk my son to school, and I don’t want to embarrass him.”
